Homemade Pop Tarts

posted in Food & Drink
  • Ingredients:

    2½ cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 Tbsp granulated sugar
    2 cups cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
    1 egg (plus 1 egg to seal tarts)
    2 Tbsp ice water

  • Filling:
    ¾ cup blueberry jam
    ½ cup blueberries

    1½ cups icing sugar
    2 Tbsp lemon juice
    Lemon zest for garnish

  • Directions:
    1. Begin by making the dough. In a food processor combine flour, salt and sugar. If you don’t have a food processor you can do this by hand. Add the cold butter cubes and pulse until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add egg and water and pulse until dough starts to come together. Be careful not to over work the dough.

    2. Remove from processor and shape dough into two rounds. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in fridge for 30 minutes.

  • 3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Remove one disc of dough from the fridge and roll into a large rectangle that is roughly 6 inches by 12 inches. Cut the dough into 8 equal-sized pieces. Place 6 squares on one of the prepared baking sheets. Place 1 Tbsp of blueberry jam on the center of each square. Top with 3 or 4 blueberries. Roll out other piece of dough and cut into 8 equal-sized squares as above.

  • 4. Beat 1 egg in a bowl and using a pastry brush, brush around sides of each square. Place another square on top to form your pop tart. Use a fork to seal the edges. Poke a few holes in the top of the dough to let steam escape. Egg wash top of tarts.

    5. Place the baking sheets in the fridge for 30 minutes before baking. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove pop tarts to a cooling rack, let cool completely before icing.

  • 6. To make icing whisk lemon juice with icing sugar. If you want a thinner icing add a bit more lemon juice. Place a dollop of icing on each pop tart and sprinkle with lemon zest.

    *Substitute any kind of jam or fruit inside your pop tarts to make different variations.
